Today is exciting because there will be pastors from all over the city praying today at the Life Connections International Pastors Prayer Summit in Malibu. Pastors will be praying together today for God to change people's hearts in their territories, this city, and this nation. It will also be a great time of unity among the spiritual leaders of Los Angeles. Please pray that we are able to discern God's will and plan as we seek Him with all of our hearts. God is continuing to do great things in LA...

Please pray for me as I am on a new film set tomorrow shooting in downtown Los Angeles. Please pray that God guides me and leads me to people who need a touch from Him. Also pray that I have the words to say in any and every situation. May God fill me with His Holy Spirit and may lives be changed!

Holly and I are excited to have her brother and girlfriend here in LA for a week visit. It is always fun to take people to see the different sites and enjoy the many beaches here. It is such a switch from the slow-paced atmosphere of Indiana which they come from! May God keep us safe as we travel...thanks, as always, for your prayers!

Please pray for me as I preach, that God would fill me with His Spirit and give me the words to say. It will actually be more of a teaching message dealing with hard questions that people may ask us about our faith. Questions such as, "Don't all religions lead to God?" and "Is the Allah of Islam the same God that we as Christians worship?" or "How do we know that the Bible is Divine rather than human in origin?" and even "Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?"
These are important questions that we as believers need to have an answer for, not only for the person who asks, but also for ourselves. Doubt about our faith can creep into our hearts when someone asks a difficult question which makes our Christian faith seem like every other religion. Not that we can or would ever want to argue anyone into believing in Jesus, but there are ligitimate questions that people seeking the truth need to have answered. Hopefully, there will be believers who will walk away tonight encouraged to talk to others about their faith in Jesus!
